I have a Sony sdm-hs53 LCD monitor. Everytime I turned it on the image shakes two or three times from side to side and then it stabilizes. It does not move much; In the begining It lked to me like a flicker but looking carefully it actually shakes. After that it seems to work fine. The actual image quality is good; I already updated the drivers and played with the settings...

I pluged the monitor to a different pc and does the same thing. Is this normal? Is there any thing that can be done to fix it. Would it die soon?? :-(

Hope to hear from you soon.

Is this something the monitor has not done in the past? It sounds to me like the auto-adjust setting the phase for optimum pixel registration.

Not sure. I bougth it on a garage sale for $40. I went back and ask but the guy does not know or he does not want to tell. So far the monitor is still working but that thig that it does when I turned it on bothers me. Besides I had another sony before and it never did anything like it.

Native resolution for that monitor is 1024 x 768.

From user review:

"Cons: it often "readjusts" itself... the screen will shake for a second when it first comes out of "sleep" mode."

http://www.viewscore.com/product_page.php?...;user_reviews=1

Another review comment suggests to me you may be able to turn this off in the menu:

"No Auto Adjust Feature have to turn on and off."

I think that probably means you have to either put up with the self-adjust "shake" or turn it off, then any time you do want the monitor to adjust itself, go back into the menu and turn it on again, then off again. That's how it reads to me anyway.
